Dear Gov1 Subscriber,

In top news this week, New Orleans’ city workers will see their pay cut by 10% through the end of the year under furloughs unveiled by Mayor LaToya Cantrell, part of a budget-cutting plan aimed at addressing the financial impact of the coronavirus and the shutdowns designed to slow its spread.

And the director of The Center for Excellence in Public Safety
explains why meaningful change in policing won't come about through new policy or legislation alone.
